For many caregivers, sharing and learning from others who are providing the same type of care can be an invaluable experience. Saint Francis Home Care Services coordinates a monthly support group for caregivers that meets every third Monday at 5pm at 26 IBM Road in Poughkeepsie. Saint Francis also arranges a free monthly Caregiver Workshop at locations around the county.
This month, the topic of the program will be diabetes. It will take place on Fri., Nov. 29 from 3pm to 5pm at the Terraces at Brookmeade, 54 Brookmeade Drive in Rhinebeck.
To register for the support group or the workshop, call Saint Francis at 483-5560. These programs are funded in part by the U.S. Administration on Aging, the New York State Office for the Aging and the Dutchess County Government.
